Symptoms of Floppy Iris Syndrome
Signs of floppy Iris syndrome include poor dilatation of pupil during eye surgery, flaccid iris and a tendency of iris prolapse through corneal incisions.
Tamsulosin causes loss of tone of the iris resulting in the following features during cataract surgery:
- Poor dilatation of the pupil, which is required during the surgery
- Floppiness of the iris
- Tendency of the iris to prolapse through incisions
Depending on the severity of the condition, floppy iris syndrome is classified into grades 0 to 3.
Floppy iris syndrome can cause complications during cataract surgery. These include damage to the lens, vitreous humor or the iris.
